I'm so jealous. I can't find these any where!

Amazing pictures of these fish anyway! What other fish do you have in the tank? Out of curiousity?

These fish are in my 75gl, details are under the "My Aquariums" tab.

Thanks Paul. I knew you'd like them! They truly are like little jewels in my aquarium. I don't need diamonds, I have these babies.

Looks like the species in the tank are very capatable in regards to the set up as a community tank. The only worry I would have is if the Cichlids of the tank do spawn as plecos can tend to be nest raiders of eggs.

Nice Tank though!

Yes, everyone in this tank does amazingly well together. With the loaches, the Whiptail and the ABN I'm afraid there is no chance I'll ever see any fry in this tank. If I see spawning activity by the Dicrossus I'll be very tempted to set them up in their very own tank.
